Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • At a softball game last night, I saw a guy who looked like Jerry Sandusky who was spending a lot of time socializing with little kids. I told Mrs. LL about him and asked her if she could pick him out of the crowd. She did. Weird.
  • At that game, I think I witnessed a dad and a step-dad loudly yelling dueling instructions to a little girl who was at the plate. Tense.
  • First it was the over-reaction of the pro-Trayvon Martin crowd and now we've got equally over the top behavior from the pro-Zimmerman people (like this site which just oozes racism.) I almost feel like a race war is about to break about between the two. And as I heard on the radio this morning, "It doesn't seem like anyone cares what the facts really are." 
  • Everyone learned yesterday just how boring Supreme Court oral arguments are as the justices considered the constitutionality of Obamacare.
  • The Baylor women beat Tennessee last night but I was taken aback by the limited roll of Tennessee coach Pat Summitt who I've always been a fan of. Last year she announced she had been diagnosed with dementia, but I didn't know that her assistant coaches pretty much run the show now as Summitt basically just sits in a chair. She doesn't even do the post-game press conferences. Sad.
  • Any story with "Ghost Ship" and "Tsunami" in the headline makes you want to read it. 
  • There's a new documentary coming out on Friday about bullying called, uh, "Bully". The current controversy is that it has a R rating which eliminates, in theory, its targeted audience. I feel like I'm the only one that remembers a very dark movie by the same name which was based on a book (of a real life event) by the Dallas Observer's Jim Shutze. 
  • Oh, in addition to not wanting to hear people scream in radio ads, I don't want to hear your kids either. 
  • There's nothing more depressing than the stories of mothers going crazy and hurting their own kids like yesterday.  I mean, she truly is crazy so what do you do? 
  • It seems like almost every Subway I go into they are training a new "sandwich specialist." 
  • Bill Parcel to take over for the New Orleans Saints for one year? I tell you, Parcell's is sounding exactly like he did before he joined the Cowboys in that he acknowledged the discussion and didn't dismiss it outright. I think it might happen.
  • The Ticket boys always talk about watching Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, etc.  Even I wonder how they have the time.

The Pat Summit story is the story of this year's basketball season -- not Britney Griner. Ms. Summit has done more for women athletics in the NCAA than any other person dead or alive. To watch her publicly decline over the year has been extremely sad. However, she has handled this challenge -- at least publicly -- as she has almost every other one -- with class. I have never met the lady but I cried when I heard of her diagnosis last year. Very sad.

This has gotten so far out of hand. A perfect example of why none of us should jump to conclusions until all the facts are in. Oh and after said person has had his or hers day in court.

Even more annoying- I think they're called Sandwich Artists...

Actually, there are folks who do care what the facts are in the Martin/Zimmerman case. The ones who don't care have already determined that one or the other is guilty. Some of us are okay with letting the investigation proceed before making a judgment

I thought Subway employees were called sandwich "artists". Just the other day, I had a tuna masterpiece on a wheat canvas!

Are you confusing Bill Parcells with the fictional character Kenneth Parcell of 30 Rock? It could be argued that Bill Parcells is fictional, too. Is anyone really that miserable?

Facts? We don't need no stinking facts (in the Trayvon Martin shooting). When you round up the usual fame whores and point them in the direction of the ENG crews, logic and nuance commit seppuku out of desperation.

The Ticket boys can watch all those programs through the magic of the DVR and the fact that show prep is an optional exercise for them.

Brittany Griner is very possibly the best player of all time in women's college basketball. She's got the height of a center and the ability to score at will as well as the best shot blocker in the history of women's basketball.

If women's basketball had a pro league anywhere close to the NBA, she would be thrown multi-millions of dollars and talked about in the same tone as Lebron James, Micheal Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell....rare air. She's a legend already on the court in women's basketball and she's still in college. She will be the only college player on the USA Olympic team this summer playing with the pros.

Parcells isn't going to caoch the Saints...he really wants to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame before he croaks. The Hall's Board of Regents have a rule: before your name can be offered to the voters, you have to have been out of the game for Five years. It is typically referred to as "The Bill Parcells Rule". His ego isn't about to let him miss out on getting in while he is still alive to enjoy it.

9:28 you know your way around computers and it helped a little but it's seems like the pics still don't blow up as big as they used too.

You used to be able to see sweat ooozing out the pours and stuff.

So the Black Panthers have put out a $ 10K bounty on Zimmerman. I am sure that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are rushing over to his home to protect him, right.

You mean they aren't. Oh that's right, they are too busy getting out in front of the cameras whipping all of the African-Americans into a frenzy so that they can make sure they get their attention and get more money for themselves!

Can you say Media Whores/ That title definitely fits people like Sharpton and Jackson.

"I Am Trayvon" and "Justice for Trayvon" have both been filed for trademark by Trayvon's parents. May as well make a little money off of your child after he's dead.

Brittany Griner will not be in the Olympic team because she will not be able to pass the genetics test.

Unfortunately, no matter what the REAL facts are, Zimmerman has now been convicted by many blacks by simply being half, and looking white, and being involved in a serious incident with a black teenager. He and his family are now in real danger even if the actual facts show he was just defending himself, as they are now appearing to show.

The apple don't fall far from teh stump.

It all makes sense now that the rest of the story is crawling out.The boy was shot because he was black. True dat. Too bad he was trying to beat the beaner's head on the sidewalk. Doesn't that say a lot about blacks seeking justice for blacks. it always has a 1 sided view, or seems to anyway. Makes it all seem like a case of justice served. Parenting skills are what makes the kid.

I feel really sorry that Trayvon had to die, but by the look on his mother's face, a few million will make that heartbreak go away.

Whom is the "They" the niglets mammy is talking about? The white man? Here we go... (YAWN).

"Too bad he was trying to beat the beaner's head on the sidewalk."

A stalker with a gun who was told by Police "don't follow him". Zimmerman brought it all on himself. A vigilante with a gun ignoring instructions from police. Now how could that ever turn out bad?

It disturbs me that the picture of Trayvon is as a 12 year-old. he was 17 at the time of the incident. Don't they have a more current picture - or was the cute kid pic just to gain sympathy? Apparently there were witnesses who back the shooter and the police report. The whole affair brings into question the "journalism" involved.

Going crazy? I think not. From what I've read, this woman had mental issues baby or not.

Zimmerman wasn't told by "The Police" to stop following. He was told by a 911 Dispatcher. This is the equivalent of the senior fry cook at McDonald's, with just about the same qualifications.

"It is typically referred to as "The Bill Parcells Rule"."

Nope, the 5 year waiting period is not "typically" referred to as the "The Bill Parcells Rule" or by any other name. The NFL HOF has had a 5 year mandatory waiting period for all inductees since it was founded in 1963. Crazy Bill was 22 in 1963.

If they are going to to keep showing the young picture of Trayvon, they need to at least change the font on Zimmerman's name to old English or gothic.

I was at the game that you were talking about the Dad and step Dad were yelling conflicting instructions. I hate to burst your bubble, but that was part of the new family unit. They were both the Dad's to the little girl. Their names were Adam and Steve.

Someone's gotten cranky lately.

Actually, the girl on the left would be really, really hot if she wasn't standing with her knees locked and a stupid expression temporarily on her face. The girl on the right could be quite plucksome, too.

Perfect example of why you have to pick your shots. 2 seconds later, they were probably both 9/10. (I subscribe to the ten point scale, unlike Bacon.

I never knew McDonald's operated 911. Call 911 and hang up. They will deliver a Happy Meal to your door.

Hardly the twelve year the media keeps showing.Auctually a seventeen year old that was kicked out of school for drug pocession.Maybe he didn't want to talk to the police about why he was trespassing.Crime watch is a real deal not a game.If Zimmerman had of gotten to his car he would have called the police to handle it.That person being killed won't make any difference to those people at all.Bet there will be some real carnage before it's over.
